Land sought to provide off-range pastures for wild horses

New Mexico

The Bureau of Land Management is looking to deal with the wild horse population in a new way.

They’re seeking proposals for new public off-range pastures that provide a free-roaming environment for the wild horses removed from public lands.

The goal is to still allow a regular public visitation.

The range must be able to accommodate anywhere from 100 to 500 horses.

The BLM says off-range pastures are in an efficient way to manage the population.

Applications are due by July 10.
